What are your thoughts. I'm looking for a stern depth/fish locator that I can look at while running the kicker. Manual zoom to find sturgeon feeding, stripers salmon, SF Bay sharks, stripers.

ideas suggestions, what do you use and like.
Thanks.

Have to agree with Mutt. I have been a Lowrance owner for about 25 years but Hummingbird just has the edge now with ease of use and less after sale problems. Updates are much easier on the Hummingbirds too.

I have the 596 HD DI on my Ranger and love it.  My fishing partner has the 5x and it's pretty good too but the Humminbird has everything included.
